Just let me know.
Thanks P-J, that would be fantastic!
Recirculating electric BIAB system for brewing 5-10 gallon beer (depending on gravity). As I live in an apartment and will be for the next foreseeable future, I need to build a system that can brew on a balcony (no propane). Power will come from the dryer outlet (240V, 30A) with a spa panel in between for GFCI. Water will be from a hose connection to the bathroom faucet and eventually going through a filter.
To keep the cost down (initially), the whole thing will be built in a phased approach so that the base system comes first, then adding pump and hoses, then standalone brew stand and hand crank hoist (for the basket/bag). To keep with this phased approach, I'd like to build the control panel to support the plan from the beginning using the following specs:
- SYL-2352 PID and a 40A SSR /w heatsink
- Illuminated buttons for pump & heating element
- Key for main power
- Emergency stop button
- Flashing buzzer with selector switch for alarm
Panel connected to the spa panel and the 5500W Camco ripple element in the BK.
Here's the exact layout I'm thinking:
I hope that's enough information.
